Situation

Poor families in Bangladesh are not able to afford to pay the fees for education and instead we find very young children taking up jobs to earn money whilst other stay idle on street begging. SWBF would like children to obtain essential skills so that the future is brighter without the awareness of a brighter future. SWBF believes education is the key to success. Those who will take small steps today are able to walk in the future and live a better and prosperous life.

Solution

The children will learn Bangla, English, mathematics, general knowledge and religions of God (Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judism etc as exist in South East Asia). SWBF would like to instill basic skills so that young people will have a chance to do something better. The school is fee free and will create a new generation of people who will have the ability to find better employement opportunities and increase earnings to take themselves out of vicious circles of poverty
